What happens if a Judge insults an advocate? An advocate is an officer of the court and insulting the advocate inside court without any justifiable reasons can lead to contempt charge against the judge also. A judge or Magistrate can also be liable for contempt of his own court or of another court. In the case a magistrate called an advocate, “This foolish advocate” and the magistrate was found guilty for his conduct and sentenced to imprisonment. Advocates can move contempt petitions against improper behaviour of judges, instead of boycotting the courts. It is better to make a fair comment in writing about the contemptuous behaviour of the judge and give it to the judge before filing a contempt petition .In such cases introduction of mandatory video record of all court proceedings will facilitate as a proof.
